Photo Number 612

I always enjoy a beautiful barn.  I bet the owner was very proud of this beauty.

This is a Real Photo Postcard from 1914 to 1917.
Tobias Midbo Barn One
This is the Tobias Midbo Barn.   There are piles of something(Straw?) or hills in the background.  I wonder where this photo was taken? 

I will take a wild guess and guess some place out east like Vermont. Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

Update from Iggy:
I think this is Tobias O. Midboe (Aug, 1878-1961) and his wife Margit Sondreal (1891-Unknown) married June 23, 1915, living in Newburgh, Steele, North Dakota.

Update:
This photo went  Full Circle 34 on November 21, 2011.

  1. Those folks in the photo are dressed pretty warmly.

    I think this is Tobias O. Midboe (Aug, 1878-1961) and his wife Margit Sondreal (1891-Unknown) married June 23, 1915, living in Newburgh, Steele, North Dakota.

    He is shown (about halfway down) this family tree:

    Shows lots of living offspring.

  2. It is a neat barn. It must have been cold as everyone is all bundled up while getting the horses, or mules, ready to go.

  3. This photo has been claimed by a Grandson of Tobias. I am mailing the photo off in the morning:)
